Trump Signs 'America-First' Healthcare Order

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Donald Trump on Thursday rolled out his "America-First" healthcare plan. Trump's executive action includes a repeal of former President Barack Obama's original mandate, protections for patients with pre-existing conditions, improvement in care for veterans, and a lowered cost of prescription drugs. Trump previously said a healthcare plan would be released before the end of August. Others including Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and more Democratic lawmakers have criticized the plan, saying it is "largely symbolic" and doesn't put forth any real action. Coverage from left-rated outlets tended to frame the order as "symbolic," and highlighted the fact that Trump's plan afforded protections for pre-existing conditions as his administration simultaneously attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Coverage from right-rated outlets tended to focus on the details of Trump's plan, often framing it as an "America-first" plan.
